Have I ever told you that I’m very much out of shape? Have I ever told you that I absolutely despise running? Well now you know. So what have I decided to do about it? Register for the Tough Mudder run, of course. If you’re unfamiliar with what that is, check all the details out here

To sum it up, it’s a 12 mile course that consists of running and a whole lot of obstacles. All of the proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

As a participant, they have asked us to raise support for the cause so I’m calling on you. Since my event is November 2nd in Charlotte, NC, you have plenty of time to base your pledge around the Cubs season. Here are some suggestions:

  • $1 for every Anthony Rizzo HR
  • $1 for every Cubs blown save
  • $1 for every Starlin Castro double

Be creative, but please consider supporting my cause. As an incentive, I am also opening up the VFTB prize closet for every doner who is kind enough to support the cause.

To register your one time donation, please us this link. If you’d rather base it around the Cubs season then you can post your pledge in the comments and I’ll be in touch at the end of the season.

I’ll have photos in November to let you know how it went, assuming I make it.
